Fla. man tricked pregnant girlfriend into taking abortion drug, feds say
Thu May 16, 2013
You're right - obviously no woman would ever be forced to have sex against her will. Oh, wait...
'Gay-free' prom idea backfires on supporters in Indiana town
Mon Feb 11, 2013
Interesting logic. Does that mean we shouldn't allow hetrosexuals to get married? Because obviously, that implies "what they are (will be!) doing in private". Maybe if they get married secretly, don't wear any wedding rings, don't live together, etc., etc.. then they wouldn't be promoting it, by adv …
'She'll kick your butt': Experts say women fit to fight
Thu Jan 24, 2013
For combat assignments, my guess is that the requirements will need to be the same. As they should be -- if we women want equality, then the same standards need to apply. And for the record, there will be MANY women able to hit those requirements you mentioned. Just last summer my husband got his bu …
How do I avoid a family fight about politics on Thanksgiving?
Tue Nov 20, 2012
I think Pulled has seriously misinterpreted his girlfriends comments about feeling "snubbed". I don't think it has anything to do with the ex-wife, but the fact that her boyfriend expects her to spend her holiday with his ex and his (adult!) children -- and be happy about it! If she's feeling snubbe …
Vote in 'urban areas' up, but doesn't fully explain election outcome
Tue Nov 20, 2012
Sorry, Alex, but this sort of argument makes no sense. Electoral votes that each state gets are based on the number of senators the state has (2 each), plus the nubmer of congresspeople in the House (allocated proportionally by population). So the lowest number of electoral votes a state can have is …
'We are hungry': Kids lament new lunch guidelines in video
Wed Sep 26, 2012
For the majority of teenagers, 850 calories at lunch should be PLENTY. Yes, some active young men eat like they have a bottomless pit for a stomach. That shouldn't be the standard for secondary schools. As an example for 850 calories you could easily get spaghetti with meat sauce, a garden salad, a …
Question at heart of Chicago strike: How do you measure teacher performance?
Tue Sep 11, 2012
Some sort of evaluation needs to be required. "There is NO way to measure the effectiveness of an educator"? Really??? Come on, union. If you expect your complaints to be taken seriously, this CANNOT be your answer. Yes, there is a place for standardized testing -- using it to measure improvement ye …
Romney: Akin's rape comments 'insulting, inexcusable'
Mon Aug 20, 2012
That's the REALLY frightening bit -- that if you follow his comments to the logical conclusion, it basically boils down to this: "Is it a rape or not? Well, she got pregnant, so deep down she must have wanted it, the immoral slut. Now let her carry the baby to term, so she has to live with the conse …
Missouri Republican: 'Legitimate rape' rarely causes pregnancy
Sun Aug 19, 2012
Okay, so this guy is a nut. But the really scary misognyistic comment is the use of "legitimate rape". What he's implying with this is scary: that women who are truly, legitimately raped (violated against their will) won't get pregnant. Of course, the flip side of that statement must be that the one …
Young undocumented immigrants line up for chance to legally stay, work in US under new deferral program
Wed Aug 15, 2012
Maybe I'm reading this incorrectly, but this program doesn't give amnesty. Amnesty -- in the immigration debate vernacular -- implies automatic legal immigrant/citizenship status. As far as I can tell, this isn't the case. If I had to come up with policy on how to handle the 15 MILLION illegal immig …
